Led by founder Dr. Elizabeth Ruzzo, who received her Ph.D in genetics and genomics from Duke University and spent over 10 years researching and identifying genetic risk for complex diseases such as epilepsy and autism, adyn is a precision medicine company that provides medically actionable scientific insights and empowers individuals to proactively optimize their health—from birth control, to fertility, and beyond.

adyn’s flagship product, the Birth Control Optimization Test, aims to quantify hormone baseline levels and assess genetic risk for two of the most serious side effects: blood clots and depression. adyn then integrates this with medical history and side effect profiles of estrogens and progestins used in hormonal contraception. adyn’s trained birth control specialists share personalized recommendations and are available for ongoing care through adyn’s telemedicine platform.
